Police announced that one of the perpetrators of the deadly bomb attack on the headquarters of the Islamic Republic Party back in 1981 has been arrested.

The assailant is a member of the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization and was arrested in Albania with the collaboration of Interpol, said the police spokesman, Saeed Montazerolmahdi, during a press conference on Saturday, Press TV reported.

He added that the perpetrator would soon be transferred back to Iran.

On 28 June, 1981, a powerful bomb went off at the IRP headquarters, where the party’s leaders were holding a meeting.

Tens of Iranian officials, including the head of Supreme Judicial Council, Ayatollah Mohammad Beheshti, were killed in the bombing.

The MKO has carried out numerous terrorist attacks against Iranian civilians and government officials over the past three decades.

Washington and the European Union have removed MKO from their lists of terrorist organizations. MKO terrorists now enjoy freedom of activity in the US and Europe, and even hold meetings with American and EU officials.
